Budapest Zen Center

Attention to all Sangha members:
On March 25th Wednesday, we will be having the last Zen meditation session at Bakáts u. 5, then there will be at least one month intermission in our practice in Budapest. The rental contract expires on March 31 anyway at Bakáts utca, and the numerous cancelations of sub-rent agreements make it impossible to renew it. Thus, we will let this contract expire without any renewal. Upon our mutual agreement, the co-renters are looking for a new place. We will be asking for everyone’s help in re-fitting the new place and moving our Budapest Zen Center there! The moment we know something solid, you will.

Kind regards in the Dharma,

Chong An Sunim, abbot
